Sting, Billy Joel and Bon Jovi are among the artists set to perform for the Rise Up New York! benefit next week. The initiative, organized by iHeartMedia and Robin Hood (an organization that focuses on fighting poverty in New York), will raise money and awareness for individuals and organizations on the frontlines for the COVID-19 pandemic in New York as well as the city’s most vulnerable. Funds will go to providing food, shelter, health and mental health services and more.
Rise Up New York! will take place Monday evening beginning at 7pm ET. It will be broadcast on local New York television stations and radio stations, as well as televised nationally on CNBC.
Also joining in the effort are host Tina Fey, Barbara Streisand, Mariah Carey, Jimmy Fallon, Robert De Niro, Trevor Noah, and Eli Manning among others.
